Inter-owned striker Samuele Mulattieri is already thriving in his loan spell with Serie B side Crotone, bagging three goals in his first two games for the club.

Speaking to Italian news outlet Calciomercato, as reported by FCInter1908, the Calabrian club’s Sporting Director Giuseppe Ursino was full of praise for the 20-year-old’s talents.

Mulattieri returned to Inter from Dutch Eerste Divisie side Volendam this summer, having impressed with his prolific goalscoring and overall form for the Dutch club.

Another loan move away always looked to be the likeliest eventuality for this season, though it was not immediately clear where with a number of clubs interested in the talented young striker.

In the end, Crotone were able to convince the player that they were the right destination, and will rely on him to power their charge back to Serie A after experiencing relegation last season, and so far he looks to be thriving at the club.

“He’s doing very well, he’s a prototype of a modern attacker,” said Ursino of Mulattieri. “Let’s hope he continues like this.”
